The Antelope Audio Zen Tour is an elegant and portable audio interface packed full of modern features. A standout in its class, the Zen Tour enhances your workflow and provides tonnes of flexibility with its high-resolution touchscreen display, unbeatable amount of I/O, industry-leading AD/DA conversion, and Thunderbolt/USB connections that ensure near-zero latency.

If you're looking for a compact audio interface that packs plenty of firepower, the Antelope Audio Zen Tour is an obvious choice. Great as a desktop interface for your home studio, the Zen Tour's generous amount of ins/outs makes it ideal for taking on the road and capturing full band performances too.

Antelope Audio - Badass Audio Interfaces

Unbeatable Connectivity

Striking the perfect balance between form and function, the Zen Tour packs a wide range of functionality into a super-compact and practical enclosure. The interface offers eight analogue inputs (four switchable mic/line and four HiZ/Line), as well as digital ADAT S/PDIF connectivity so that you can expand if needed.

The eight outputs, meanwhile, have been configured with flexibility in mind. These include two independent headphone outs and dual monitor outputs that allow you to easily A/B between different speaker configurations. Two reamp outs and a talkback button on the front panel further enhance its usability, making it one of the most all-encompassing interfaces on the market today.

Ergonomic Touchscreen

The Antelope Audio Zen Tour can be controlled using a gorgeous built-in touchscreen. Able to display various elements such as input and output levels, you can carefully monitor your recordings and make changes on-the-fly. However, you also have the choice of a dedicated software control panel and accompanying mobile app - if you're away from the unit itself.

Designed With Guitarists In Mind

Zen Tour is a great choice for guitarists in particular, thanks to it's ultra-low latency. Borrowing the powerful 'Field-Programmable Gate Array' (FPGA) from Antelope Audio’s top-selling pro studio devices, 
this game-changing technology provides the interface with massive parallel processing capabilities, and thus the lowest latency levels possible. So if you're tracking guitars direct, you'll hear no annoying "ghosting" but simply clear, precise and immediate recordings instead.

Users of the Zen Tour also have access to extremely realistic DSP effects that include guitar amp, cab and pedal emulations, as well as a plethora of classic studio gear and mic emulations to boot.
